The actress who considers herself a bathroom singer tries to give a perfect take, under the guidance of music maestro AR Rahman. And we must say the actress has nailed it. Priyanka Chopra, you have competition.

Learning the ropes
"When I was recording with Rahman sir, I messed up a few times but that is ok... it happens. I did not know anything about singing... I did not know how to sustain my breath, but later on I learnt with the help of Rahman sir," said Alia.

How she got the offer
"I think Imtiaz heard me humming a tune on the sets and he might have discussed this with (AR) Rahman sir," shares Alia.

And why she accepted...
 “It’s a soft song and I like soft, mellow numbers. Probably that’s why I sang the song. But, I was really nervous,” says the actor.

Will she keep singing?
 “I am a bathroom ­singer, to be honest. I am not looking to sing professionally or anything,” added the Student of The Year actor.

Industry reactions are also not bad...

Karan Johar: my darling!!! You sing so beautifully... chalo... I atleast have one singer on my side...(wink...wink)!!!

Mahesh Bhatt: Alia sings for AR Rahman for the first time in her life.  hope you guys like it !!!
